We had a wonderful Christmas! It was so nice to have Stephen home and be able to spend a week with him! Beckham sure loves his daddy! Here are some pictures to sum up our Christmas.
 Santa came around on a firetruck

 Beckham LOVED playing the piano. Every time he would start playing he would start singing. It was too cute!

 He has started to crawl underneath things...he gets stuck and freaks out. Too funny!

 We put him in the box and pushed him around the room. He thought it was fun!

ONE year old!

I can't believe how fast the time has gone! Beckham is already a year old. I am having trouble importing the pictures to the computer, so I will have to do that later. But for now, here are his stats at his 12 month check-up.
Weight-- 22lbs 11oz (50th percentile)
Height-- 29.5 inches (50th)
Head-- 19 inches (95th)

*He loves loves loves LOVES food. I'm pretty sure he would eat all day if I let him
*He is starting to walk
*He understands a lot of what we say to him (drink some water, close the door, don't touch, etc)
*Has started to say hi
*Usually he still takes 3 naps
*Loves to drink from a sippy cup
*Knows when he is doing something funny
*Gets excited when we go outside
*Still only has 2 bottom teeth (but, his top 2 are about to pop through)
*Sleeps from about 7:30pm-7:30am

He is such a fun and happy boy, especially when he is not sick! It's nice to have him back to normal again!

Rough Week

This last week has been pretty rough! Beckham had a fever the 23rd and 24th. On the 25th we celebrated his birthday with family. We woke up on the Monday, the 26th (Beckham's birthday) and he was sick. He had a nasty cough and a runny nose! We ended up going to doctor just to find out it was a virus and they couldn't do anything to help (surprise!)! He had this little cold the rest of the week. 

On Saturday I woke up with the cold. By Saturday night we thought that Beckham was finally better! When Stephen got him out of bed Sunday after his first nap he had thrown up. :-( In addition to his cold that he wasn't completely over, he now had the stomach bug and all the fun things that go along with it. We went on Monday for his 12 month checkup. He had lost almost a pound in a week. 

All day Monday I was feeling pretty nauseous. (I still had the cold, too) I ended up with the stomach bug Monday evening, and Stephen got it in the middle of the night.  Tuesday we spent all day in bed (the best you can with a year old little boy). I am happy to say that Stephen is now 100% better! Beckham still has a little runny nose but it almost better. And I will hopefully be better in the next day or so! It looks like I just caught exactly what Beckham had, which makes sense since I'm around him 24/7. Luckily the stomach bug was just a 24 hour big that is gone for all of us. I just have a bad head cold now that I am trying to get rid of.

Sorry this was a long post with no pictures. I will post again soon with pictures!
